Abu Dhabi, May 12, 2019 – The Ministry of State for Federal National Council Affairs (MFNCA) has organised the “Your Health Is Our Concern” initiative in collaboration with Medeor Hospital Abu Dhabi to spread awareness about the benefits of a healthy diet and promote a culture of health-consciousness among its employees.
Held at the MFNCA’s headquarters in Abu Dhabi, the initiative included a workshop titled “Healthy Fasting during Ramadan” that showcased healthy ways to fast during the Holy Month that ensure healthy blood sugar levels, curb any increases in cholesterol levels, and maintain optimal BMI and vital signs. The workshop was followed by medical tests and a free consultation with a dietitian.
His Excellency Sami bin Adi, the MFNCA’s Assistant Undersecretary for the Support Services Sector, said: “This initiative reflects our commitment to playing a part in promoting healthy attitudes and behaviours in our community. It reflects our dedication to meeting the highest standards of health and safety in the workplace, by means of periodic initiatives that raise awareness around health and wholesome diets, in addition to promoting regular medical check-ups. The objective is to provide advice and guidance for employees, help them maintain their health during the Holy Month of Ramadan and the rest of the year, and educate them on the positive effects of good health on performance and career.”
The initiative reflects the MFNCA’s commitment to supporting all national strategies; the UAE leadership’s vision calls for promoting health and safety in the UAE community, particularly in the workplace, where it ensures employees’ happiness and incentivises them to be more productive.
